SRK, Kajol ring the NASDAQ bell

Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol have created history, by becoming the first Indian stars to ring the NADAQ bell. NASDAQ is the world’s biggest stock exchange.


Shah Rukh seemed to be so excited that his Twitter status stated, “NASDAQ will be fun. Have to make sure I reach on time, otherwise will end up being blamed for economic up heavel across the world too..ha ha.”

This is the first time that Indian stars were invited to ring the opening bell for the exchange as an act of promotion for their upcoming film My Name Is Khan.

According to a NASDAQ spokesman, SRK and Kajol rang the bell on behalf of Fox Searchlight Pictures, which is distributing the film in the US market.

The Karan Johar directed film, which releases on February 12, will see the most sought after onscreen pair in Bollywood re-unite after eight years. Shot across much of the United States, My Name Is Khan will also have a star-studded premiere at the 60th annual Berlin International Film Festival during the week of its release.

With over 3,700 companies listed, the NASDAQ has more trading volume than any other stock market in the world.

Khan and Kajol have starred together in many successful films over the years including Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai which are both modern classics in Hindi cinema.
